My new stamps!

I said in my last post that I had been a bit naughty and bought some new stamps...well what do I go to work for lol?

I have to thank my lovely bloggy buddy Michelle for letting me know about this beautiful butterfly stamp by Stampendous. You can see the amazing card Michelle made with this stamp here. I was just so inspired by her card I had to see what I could do with this gorgeous stamp.

On the subject of work, I would just like to say thank you to everyone who's has enquired about how I've been getting on in my new job. Well, I love my job, the work is really interesting and everyone I work with has made feel so welcome and has been really supportive. I'm saving a fortune in petrol as I now work so close to home...more money to spend on craft stash!!

My health has also improved, I still feel as though I've still got a cold all the time, I just seem to have one continuous virus that won't leave me alone!.. but I am much better than I was.

Still time to go play with my new stamps before the weekend's out so I'm off....see you again soon!

  • Butterfly Stamp: Stampendous
